Keypads can be tailored to a specific application allowing for an intuitive user experience.  An integrated speaker provides audio feedback specific to an application via the use of .WAV files.  To extend Safari’s time in the field, an optional 4000mAh high capacity battery is available.

A powerful computer featuring 128MB SRAM, 128MB internal FLASH, as well as a user accessible SD card slot for additional mass storage, Safari uses Microsoft® Windows® CE .NET 5.0 operating system and a Marvell PXA270 processor operating at 520 MHz.  All of this in a package that fits comfortably in the hand and weighs in at a trim 14 oz.
